Trinity_ (Trinitywrites) | 4 comments Hi there,

I recently indie published my book when the rights reverted back to me from the original publisher, and it has landed on someone else's profile. Here is the ASIN: B07BYFMQDN.

If you look on my profile, you will see the originally published ebook with the same cover, so there shouldn't be any issue in proving it's mine :)

My additional question has to do with removing the old version (which is no longer available), but also transferring the reviews over to the new version. Is that possible? Amazon transferred their reviews over to the new version; you can see if you go to the current Amazon product page. I'm hoping Goodreads can do the same :)

Much thanks, in advance! :)

Trinity_ (Trinitywrites) | 4 comments Since this is going to happen with every single book I publish, can I just use the same thread?

If you'd rather I use a new thread, I'll do that, just let me know.

Here's the next one:

And you can see it here on my Amazon author page:

Caitlin Williams | 3 comments Hi
I wonder if you could help. I added my book The Events at Branxbourne to my author profile. Since then, I believe someone else has added it to the profile of a different Caitlin Williams who writes business books.

So, there are two entries for this same book, could they be merged please?
This is the entry I made - the correct one.

This is the other entry.

Thanks in advance for your help

Caitlin Williams | 3 comments Hi Michael. No Just Amazon, at present.
Thanks so much for your help

Michael Korleone (michaelkorleone) | 3881 comments We list Amazon Kindle editions with ASIN only, no ISBN. I'll be deleting the duplicate edition containing ISBN. All its shelvings, ratings, reviews etc will move to ASIN edition
